    I think I need to look in to that spray-foam for my place.
    I would have loved to finish out the inside before I moved in here. But, was in a time crunch.

    Ohh, I don't know. Part of the cheap feeling of that POS Camaro can be attributed to its light weight. It doesn't weigh shit.
    I guess that is why, even with only a V-6 it kinda hauls ass.

    I get the feeling Craig is actually the smart one! At least he definitely has his priorities in the correct order (family first).

    I'm going to have to agree with that statement. New GM stuff is cheap, plastic, garbage. You might as well buy a Barbie Jeep!

    Just don't use used motor oil from gasoline engines. It can be corrosive. I have also seen it deteriorate rubber components.
    Back in PA we used to oil everything. We could get pretty much unlimited...

    There is no escaping the fact that we have become a disposable society.
    Cali actually has laws in effect (since 2016) that make it illegal for you to work on your own vehicle (seriously).

    Same here! I'm "perpetually" stuck in 2015 (because of autodicks).

    This is nothing new. Get used to it.
    I always get three quotes now.
    I have three pretty big suppliers near me (IMS, Bralco, Coast) who all get their 6061 from the same dang mill.

    If you have found a shop that lets you own your job from start to finish? Keep that job!
    That scenario is becoming more and more rare. But, I believe it is the way it should be.

    That's what they said. Interest isn't great. Payment fluctuates with balance.

    It was two separate notes.
    Time wise, yes, they did overlap (the loan is still active). But, never had anything to do with each other.

    I was partially mistaken. First one through them was a lease.
    But, the second one is indeed a loan. And, the only collateral listed is what was purchased.
